Yes it’s true, this PC girl has her very first Mac & I feel it’s important to let you folks know why. First, I love quality hardware, all of it, bring it! Secondly, many of you ask me for my advice & opinions to help you make informed purchases, how can I give that advice if I’m not comfortable on all platforms? Lastly and most importantly, I host reviews and giveaways from some really nice companies but I’m not on any brand’s payroll, my tech opinions remain my own. I’ll continue to give you the straight scoop & tell you guys when I’ve been compensated in any way for reviews, giveaways and other promo supports.
My eye has been caught by the 2.8 pound Mac Book Air for quite awhile, I am increasingly obsessed with mobile computing solutions that are light & slim .The 13.3 inch MacBook air weighing in at just 2.8 pounds totally fits in with my requirements. I’m now trying it out, posting on the blog using MarsEdit for Mac. This is a gorgeous computer, so light I can carry it in one hand, ultra quiet, everything is solid state which equals dead silence except when doing any intense gaming that causes the CPU fan to spin up.
To test the photo insertion properties of MarsEdit Here’s a nifty pic I found by a very cool artist named Ben Heine, you can get to know more about Ben & his work by checking out his blog http://benjaminheine.blogspot.com/
Considering that this computer is running OS X Lion & not Snow Leopard, I thought Ben’s pic would add a nice touch to the post ;)
I’m just finding my way around the Mac,there is much to love about this computer & the Lion Operating system but after decades of being strictly a Windows gal I’m not sure if I’ll be able to adjust, I’m using Mars Edit to write this post & am already missing Windows Live Writer so we shall see how this goes, I suspect I’ll be installing Windows via Boot Camp very soon.
I will continue to keep you guys updated as I explore MAC OS X Lion & my explorations of all things Apple, yes, I still love Windows but just like a parent with many children, there is enough love in my heart for many gadgets! Just consider me a PC pausing to take a bite out of an Apple ;)
FTC: I have not been compensated in any way for this post by Apple, Ben Heine or Red Sweater Software or anybody else for that matter :)
